I have an OLD GIGABYTE GA-EP43-UD3L Mother board in a PC that I've successfully loaded the latest Ubuntu on using a DVD. However, I'm thinking that re-usable USB Flash drives might be a better use of my money.
But, I used Etcher (recommended by Ubuntu) to create a bootable USB Flash drive on my Mac. Seems to work well, but whenever I insert the USB drive into my PC and power on, the Post screen displays and hangs there. Keyboard is dead, system will sit there forever with the Post screen displayed.
If I hold F12 during power on and go to the select Boot drive screen, I get 4 choices for USB
I talked to GIGABYTE tech support and was told to use USB-HDD. I put that into the Advanced BIOS boot order. However, nothing I've tried will get it past the Post screen.
Anyone have any ideas besides replacing the motherboard? I'll keep wasting DVDs before doing that.
